ORDINANCE NO. 010094

 

Waiving payments in lieu of taxes of the Housing Authority of Kansas City, Missouri, for years 1997-2000.

 

WHEREAS, the City and the Housing Authority of Kansas City, Missouri, entered into cooperation agreements on October 30, 1941 and January 9, 1950, both of which have been amended from time to time (the Cooperation Agreements), relating to the construction, operation and maintenance of up to 6,500 public housing units in accordance with state and federal laws; and

 

WHEREAS, the Cooperation Agreements provided that the Housing Authority would make payments in lieu of taxes to the City equal to ten percent (10%) of the shelter rents as defined in the Cooperation Agreements; and

 

WHEREAS, Committee Substitute for Ordinance No. 46186 authorized the City to amend the Cooperation Agreements to allow the waiver of payments in lieu of taxes; and

 

WHEREAS, until Fiscal Year 1997, the shelter rents as defined by the Cooperation Agreements have been insufficient to result in payments in lieu of taxes to the City; and

Housing Authority of Kansas City, et al., Case No. 99-862-CV-W-3 (United States District Court for the Western District of Missouri), the Housing Authority entered into a settlement agreement with the Hickman Mills School District and other party plaintiffs involving the scattered site housing program in which the Housing Authority agreed to request the City to waive the payment in lieu of taxes and the School District agreed to support such a waiver; and

 

WHEREAS, it is in the best interest of the City to assist the Housing Authority in defraying these extraordinary costs and make possible for the proper operation and maintenance of the public housing units located in the City and to waive the amounts due for calendar years 1997, 1998 and 1999 under the payments in lieu of taxes provisions of the cooperation agreements and to waive the amounts due, if any, for calendar year 2000 under the Cooperation Agreements; NOW, THEREFORE,
